Sherri Shepherd to Ex ” It’s Not My Child, I’m Not Paying Child Support”

"One For The Money" New York Premiere - Outside Arrivals

Since Sherri Shepherd and husband Lamar Sally announced their divorce, everything has become so messy.. She has left the View and now she doesn’t want anything to do with her unborn surrogate baby.  She believes that her husband or ex shall we say has defrauded her her into having the kid in the first place so he could get child support ..

According to

Now our sources say … the baby was conceived with Lamar’s sperm, but NOT Sherri’s egg.

Now here’s where it gets tricky. We’re told Sherri does not want custody or even to be considered a parent … because she doesn’t want to get stuck with massive child support payments.

Sherri wants a judge to rule she has no parental rights or responsibilities — which would shut the door to child support. She claims Lamar defrauded her — that he got her to sign on for a surrogate birth knowing full well he would divorce her and then nail her to the wall for child support.

Our Lamar sources say Sherri tried to get pregnant in vitro and when it didn’t work she got deeply involved in the surrogacy process.

Another twist … Sherri has filed for divorce in New Jersey and Lamar has filed in California. This is not a coincidence. We did some digging, and found New Jersey courts generally do NOT recognize surrogacy agreements, which means Lamar would probably be shut down. Not so in Cali.


This whole situation is a mess and I have to kind of side with Sherri on this, because it could very well be true, the person who will be affected by this the most is the baby… The surrogate just needs to put this baby up for adoption, because it’s clear that this will be an ongoing battle.

    I found this very interesting, it makes me wonder was this his plan all along. Never underestimate an opportunist. He also filed papers in California, where Sherri filed in New Jersey, which is where they lived.
